F…K RECESSION, I’LL TAKE A SHOWER. by Fabio Coruzzi

F…K RECESSION, I’LL TAKE A SHOWER.

The sound of recession came up in a hot afternnon , in the middle of an Italian summer,.

Outside were 42 degrees and people were trying to relax and think about the nothingness, I was reading a newspaper, it was talking about recession and economic downturn. Just words after words, adding shambles to global chaos.

While I was thinking about in what kind of boat the world will sink,a friend of mine, a carpenter, decided that was it. He said: I dont’ give a damn about, I don’t even know what you are talking about, I am just a worker with the a level, nothing more, you know what? I’ll go to have a shower to refresh myself and take a nap afterwards.

So I went to record his “indifference” about this world made of numbers, theories and fobias. He was incarnating the common sense through the hot environment of South Italy. He was singing while taking shower, because singing brings good mood and optimism…..

That was the sound of recession, a big interrupting noise followed by singing songs under a refreshing shower.

‘Emigrant’ by Osvaldo Cibils

Name: Osvaldo Cibils
Osvaldo Cibils 1961 artist since soooo many errors. Born in Montevideo, Uruguay. he lives in Rovereto, Italy.

Location: Rovereto(TN) Italy

Title: emigrant
Description:
So many tears and so many sighs crashed in the vigor of the longing never let us see the curiosities of space and of tranquility products of self-defense.

A saddlebag full of horizons that rise excites the admiration of the fools, the benevolence it stalks tracing the path that goes from indomitable will to the lot awaiting it.

With the hunger of surprise the shell of individuality becomes reversible and does not ignore anymore whether it is right or wrong in its choice.

The light intelligence, completely, imitates the gestures of intuition and enters the realm of ideas and feelings, then sorts them buries them in the dirt and proceeds with firmness.

The temple was left far behind.

Title: ” deb(e)atEs ”
Description:
What happens in Italy, where every political party seems to deny this global crisis.

Left and Right of the parliament speak of exactly the same things, and don’t propose any changes at all.

This is not a political work, but just an observation. Mp3 is a popular and fast format, easy to transmit.

‘Capitalism is an Empty Factory’ by Obsil

Name: Obsil (Giulio Aldinucci)
Location: Siena (Italy)

Title: Capitalism is an empty factory
Description:
This composition can be described as an imaginary (and cerebral) soundscape of the life inside one of the factories that are going to close in Italy (…in Europe, in the World). In other words, as an enormous empty space where just some of the machines are in function; a sort of desert where the human and machine sounds jumble up like gloomy mirages.

‘Same Old Car’ by Damiano Rocco

Name: Damiano Rocco
Location: Padova, Italy

Title: Same old car
Description:
Crisis is a basic part of our economic system, for this it happens cyclically. Every time crisis affects our system governments uses always the same methods to face it. Funds to car industry and building trade, especially in Italy, are a constant in economic crisis times. So, to represent the periodicity of crisis and the immobility of institution, I made this loop starting from field recordings of car passing.
